No thanks.

The only good angle is looking straight down the front end. Every other shows it for what it really is; a typical Subaru outback, Toyota, or pretty much any other manufacturers latest crossover SUV. There is always a niche market for custom jobs like this, but in 15 years there won't be any of them left because the rich people that can afford them will have long since lost interest and moved on to something else.

Any change to those Toyotas would be good given that they are butt ugly. Good fail on the K5 styling attempt though.
